Welcome to the Mindful Learning Technologies (MLT) Lab at the Faculty of Education in Science and Technology, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology!
The Mindful Learning Technologies Lab focuses on gaining a better understanding of the mechanism of learning and its relationship to affect, with a focus on learning complex domains, such as in Computer Science Education. The group takes an interdisciplinary perspective to investigate instructional theories and strategies using various learning technology tools. In particular, we are interested in investigating the potential of learner-robot interaction to foster learning, focus, and creativity through social cognitive and emotional cognitive mechanisms.
Research at the Mindful Learning Technologies Lab combines three areas: (1) Computer Science Education, (2) Human-Robot Interaction, and (3) Educational Technologies. The overall goal is to utilize technology to gain a deeper understanding of the processes involved in learning and to promote it using technology from an holistic cognitive-affective perspective.
